Chlorpyrifos affects the nervous system by inhibiting the breakdown of acetylcholine (Ach), a neurotransmitter. When insects are exposed, chlorpyrifos binds to the active site of the cholinesterase (ChE) enzyme, which prevents breakdown of ACh in the synaptic cleft. The resulting accumulation of ACh in the synaptic cleft causes overstimulation of the neuronal cells, which leads to neurotoxicity and eventually death.
Environmental toxicity: It is highly toxic for fishes like Rainbow trout and Carp.
